Satoru Kamagari – Sequel Review

2013-08-29 03.35.16(Classic Satoru.  Always knows how to make MC blush.)

Just a quick side note for those people who don’t read my entire review because they want to avoid spoilers: First off, before I even jumping into a basic story premise, I want to say… that this sequel is probably one of my favorites.  I usually don’t have very high expectations for Voltage sequels (in my opinion, main stories tend to be better, longer, and a better use of my money).  But I was pleasantly surprised when I realized Satoru’s sequel is extremely entertaining.  I haven’t created a Top 5 Sequels list, but if I did… his would have to be included.

Basic Story Premise: You and Satoru are living the life of a happy couple.  This includes quiet evenings of watching soap operas in Satoru’s room.  (Although, he spends more time distracting you than actually watching the television.)  However, your peaceful life as a couple is disturbed when the demons realize that something may be wrong with the Fate Database: the number of human candidates that are marked to become toast has been increasing at an abnormal rate.  When humans start dropping into comas around you, the demons conclude that someone is manipulating the Fate Database.  You and Satoru must stop the culprit before it is too late.  And if things weren’t complicated enough already, a handsome new suitor decides to show up… and he’s determined to charm you right out of Satoru’s arms.

My review with some spoilers, screenshots, and CGs after the jump.  No walkthrough because both endings are available to read after you finish through the story once. Continue reading

Satoru Kamagari – Main Story Review

2013-08-08 15.55.18Basic Story Premise: You want 10 more days to live so that you can see your parents who are flying in from overseas to see you. You’ve chosen Satoru to be your personal demon. At first it seemed like a great idea, but it doesn’t take you long to realize you may have chosen badly. The two of you have a hard time seeing eye to eye because he inherently mistrusts people. He also views humans (particularly women) as tools. Only the ones that can help him advance in his career or be of use to him in any other way are worth his time. Why does Satoru have such a pessimistic outlook on life? And why do you find yourself falling for this rough demon? As you come closer to your last days, the demons inform you that some important people from your life are fated to die because of last minute changes to the Fate Database. What sacrifies will you (and possibly Satoru?) make to try to save them?

My review with screenshots, some spoilers, and the CGs after the jump!
